All books and journals are copyrighted. However, the University is licensed by the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA) to allow students to re-use excerpts from most* published books and journals for educational purposes. The CLA's revenue is paid out as royalties to copyright owners.
Students are permitted to re-use 10% or one chapter/article (whichever is greater) from each book or journal issue, per module, for learning and teaching purposes.
* The CLA's permission checker tool will tell you if a particular book or journal is covered by their licence. If it's not, you have the option of using the education exceptions outlined elsewhere in this guide.
